Malaysia has found a better way of celebrating New Year’s Eve through a drone show. Fireworks are still displayed in key areas of Kuala Lumpur but this one is special because it was led by none other than the Prime Minister himself. Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad.
Armed with my phone, I went to Dataran Merdeka where the government has prepared for this occasion. A huge stage with sophisticated lighting and sound system, food trucks and most locals and tourists added to the excitement as the clock was about to strike 12 midnight
The Prime Minister’s speech was well-timed as he finished his speech just 2 minutes before 12 midnight. Then, he himself turned on the switch to finally start the drone show. While the drone show was happening, I could almost see the fireworks from KLCC area up in the sky. But we were more amazed at the drone show because drone shows do not come much often.
Without further ado, here’s the footage from my phone to show you how the drone show went. Enjoy.
